Another botched EGR Delete!

Just finished my egr delete, got the turbo set so the gap between the y pipe is non existent on one side and microscopic on the other. Tightened everything up and can hear a very faint but obvious exhaust leak. I have felt around all of the connections and cant feel a whisper of exhaust. I let it warm up and drove it around the block, it has very low boost. The stock egr valve is in place and I have no CEL. Im going to go back out and check all of the piping to the intercooler, but beyond that I am completely lost as to what to do next, any help would be greatly appreciated.


Also, I noticed this little bugger (circled in red) without a connection, but I cant find a missing hose anywhere in the shop or where it would plug in to...? And now I feel kind of like and idiot... Its on the left side of the intake when facing the truck. directly to the left of it is the fill pipe for the engine oil.

You've just answered your own question, so I don't know why you are even bothering to post this. That brass nipple on the intake is where your MAP sensor hose is supposed to connect to, and the direct reason why you have very little to no turbo boost (and likely a P2262 code set if you were to check). The MAP sensor is bolted to a bracket, which is in turn bolted to the evaporator housing on the passenger side of the engine compartment with three 10mm nuts. This sensor has a wiring connector with a red lock tab on it, and a rubber hose with small red squeeze type clamp securing it. The other end of it, is supposed to connect to the brass nipple you circled in your picture.

And the air exiting the brass nipple is the sound you are hearing when you accelerate.

Is that's what's causing the assumed "exhaust leak" and lack of boost...? This sucker is almost as gutless as when the egr went out to begin with...

Maybe its because Ive been doing the y-pipe thing for 3 years now... but what is so hard about it???

I have had some that when I took the clamp off, the y shot off and had about an inch gap and Ive still gotten then to seal up without loosening the uppies
